Two Things for 2023
As we begin 2023, there are two things I’d like to share with you. The first is something we enjoy being able to offer our members each January, and the second…well, you can read that when you finish reading the first one.
TAP Computers for Sale
Every January, the rules regarding our status as a 501(c)3 organization allow us to sell a number of refurbished computers, with the stipulation of putting the proceeds back into our refurbishment program to further the TAP cause. Each year we do this…and each year it’s a successful, sell-out event, almost instantly.
Effective immediately, TAP has an assortment of refurbished Windows 10 and 11 desktops, laptops, and all-in-ones for sale. These computers are in excellent condition and the typical prices are only $150-175. If you’d like to purchase a (new-to-you) computer and help further the TAP cause, head on over to our office and select yours today!

Because of the many services we offer, the TVCUC has become one of the largest organizations in Tellico Village. And while the good side of this is that we can offer you unparalleled First Level Support for your technology devices, provide hundreds of repurposed computers every year to local needy children and families, provide our members technology help resources, provide assistance to other Tellico Village organizations, and much more – we can’t do it without volunteer support…without you! If you’re willing to volunteer just a couple of hours a month, it would be a huge help.
It bears repeating that you don’t need to be a geek, or even a technology enthusiast, to volunteer. We have many open positions in education, management, administration, and other areas. We have a core group of members who help keep your club functional, which is a hefty amount of work. It’s very much like running a business organization, which to some degree, it is.
Among other positions, we desperately need to fill two Board of Director positions – Secretary and the Vice President. Regarding the Secretary position, this requires about two hours work per month, and half of that is simply attending the board meeting. We conduct our meetings via Zoom and record them, so no manual notetaking is necessary. The Vice President position is also a low-stress, minimal-effort role that does not automatically roll over to the position of President (unless you desire that). Please consider volunteering for one of these (or other) positions by sending us an email.
